Liv's 3rd birthday- the Melbourne edition

We had a family trip to Melbourne on the train yesterday for Liv's 3rd birthday. We saw the Myer Christmas windows from a distance (the queue was very, very long!), lucky we went to see them at the end of November, when we didn't have to wait long. And we just wandered around, soaking up the Christmas atmosphere, and tried to ignore the hype. We had lunch on the grass in the grounds of a church, and watched the horses and carriages go by. It was a good day, with very little whingeing from anyone!

La Belle Miette- a gorgeous little macaron shop in Hardware lane. A bit of a tradition for us when we visit the big smoke is to buy some macarons from this shop.

The royal arcade all Christmassy- my favourite Melbourne arcade

Will be back soon with photos from the rest of the day.

What a lot of fun! Your girls are GORGEOUS!

I can't wait until Spence is a little bit older & we can trek into Melbourne for the day a bit easier.
